The number of
vacancies at financial services firms in London improved
dramatically in April, according to a new study.
In news which will interest graduate job hunters, Powerchex claimed
that there were 87 per cent more available positions in the sector
on a year-on-year basis last month.
Furthermore, the pre-employment screening firm found that the
figure for April represented a monthly improvement of 12 per
Insurance and hedge fund job vacancies both showed year-on-year
rises of more than 100 per cent, while opportunities in investment
banking rose by over 200 per cent.
However, Alexandra Kelly, a director at Powerchex, was quick to
warn that the figures are a "phenomenon specific to the city of
London and financial services in particular".
"We are comparing this to the very depths of the recession and
recruitment activity still has a little way to go to match its
pre-recession levels," she said.
Major Players claimed recently that the number of job briefs in the
UK PR sector increased by 210 per cent on a quarterly basis in the
first three months of 2010.
